Madeleine McCann parents have refused to take part in a new Netflix documentary about her sudden disappearance.
The as yet untitled true crime series will comprise of eight episodes featuring interviews with investigators and those involved in the investigation.
Madeleine disappeared from her hotel room where she was staying with her parents, Kate and Gerry and her twin siblings Sean and Amelie back in 2007.
Her mum and dad were eating in a restaurant nearby and had left her sleeping in the apartment. When they went to check on her, she had vanished.
According to the MailOnline Kate and Gerry McCann refused to take part because the Metropolitan Police investigation into Maddie vanishing, Operation Grange, is still continuing.
The investigation is still underway to find her and police recently asked the government to extend funding for Operation Grange.
The Home Office is considering the application. In March £85,000 was granted to police to cover operational costs between April and September this year.
The couple are also still waiting on a judgement from the European Court of Human Rights regarding the Portuguese ex-police chief who claimed Maddie is dead and they are responsible.
Last year Netflix aired a one-part Amanda Knox documentary, which featured an interview with Knox herself.
She was jailed in Italy for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who she shared an apartment with, but was later acquitted.
The channel also saw huge success with Making a Murderer, based on Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey’s convictions for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
Since the series was shown there have been developments in the case, with Avery nearer to release and new theories on who may have killed Teresa from viewers turning detectives.
